Cappotto doppiouso 1948

3 quick facts

1. The name Ulster is derived from the area of the Irish province of Ulster, whose people used to wear a certain tweed overcoat.

2. It’s usually made out of a thick, heavy tweed, and will feature patch pockets. It’s meant to fit somewhat roomy in order to accommodate any heavy sweaters or thick tweed sport coats worn underneath.

3. The lapels that are “notched” in a certain way, so they can easily be folded over when the coat is buttoned up all the way.

The Florentine version of the Ulster coat is called “doppio uso” ( two way) since it could also be buttoned up all the way.

In Tuscany, the Casentino Doppio Uso with wolf or fox fur collar is in its natural environment. The piped contrasted edges and the equally contrasting wool lining is the ultimate sign of a well executed garment.

Here at Liverano, our own interpretation of the Doppio Uso, is one of the main courses in our tailoring range.
